Star Wars Battlefront II on Xbox One

In celebration of Star Wars Day, players of Star Wars Battlefront II are being rewarded with a triple treat this weekend.

Starting today, all players will gain double experience points in online matches which will help greatly in levelling up characters. This is the first time double xp has been implemented in Battlefront II.

In addition to double xp, the limited-time event, Ewok Hunt, has returned and will run until Monday. Gamers will also be given the chance to unlock the Endor Leia appearance if they can complete all of the weekend challenges. The first challenge is live now and it involves flashing 10 ewoks with a flashlight in Ewok Hunt.

May is turning out to be an exciting month for Star Wars Battlefront II. It was just revealed earlier today that the game’s second season would be arriving this month and that it would be based on the new Han Solo movie.
